Shocking Accident. A marriage was solemnized in Norway, Me., on Sunday evening
last; and a lot of thoughtless boys and young men, in consequence of a disparity of years
in married parties, undertook to serenade, in Calathumpian style the married couple. The
result was that one of them, the son of Captain Jere Forster, aged about 20, was so badly
wounded in one of his eyes and his nose, by the shot from a gun that he was not expected
to live through yesterday. Two others of the party were also slightly wounded. The matter
will undergo a legal investigation.
